Synopsis: Because Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that someone will live with for years, or even decades, it is important for family and friends to understand what the person is going through and learn how to give support. Multiple Sclerosis used to be feared because it was so unpredictable and doctors knew very little in how to treat it. Thanks to good research and great doctors, people can live with MS even though there is not a cure yet. The Electrifying Story of Multiple Sclerosis is written to help people understand what it feels like to have the disease, how to help, and what symptoms people feel.
About the Author: Vanita Oelschlager is a wife, mother,grandmother, former teacher, current caregiver and, for almost ten years, author and poet.
She was born and raised near Pittsburgh. She is a graduate of Mt. Union College in Alliance, Ohio, where she currently serves as a Trustee.
She has also supported and helped Jim as he built Oak Associates, ltd. into a successful investment management firm.
Today, as an accomplished author, Vanita shares openly the experiences that she, Jim and their families have had with multiple sclerosis. She has likened MS to living with an elephant, one that won't go away or be ignored. Together, she and Jim have found ways to live with this "elephant", and to share some of the larger lessons about life they've learned through the disease.
Review: This was definitely not what I expected, in an amazing way. I have dear friends that have MS and I wanted to learn more about the condition. I was honestly expecting a dry, medical-style book, that would have me looking up terms often to understand what was being said. If that's what you're looking for, then this is NOT the book for you. Brilliantly designed, written, and illustrated, this book explains MS in a way that someone with no medical background can understand. At the end you leave feeling like you've learned a lot, without even realizing you were doing so. Brilliant!
